A police officer in Canada was called to a report of a suspected fight in downtown Oshawa, but what he found was actually quite peaceful.
Officer Jarrod Singh with the Durham Regional Police stumbled on a group of college students from the University of Ontario Institute of Technology taking part in a music video arranged by Vivid Media.
The students are part of a dance troupe and they were filming a video for an upcoming competition.
Officer Singh said, "I saw eight people gathered around one person, so I can see how a member of the public thought it was a fight. But when I got closer I could see he was break dancing in the middle and there was someone filming it."
